The final line-up of guest musicians for the new album

Having returned from my “up and right” tour I’m now getting my head firmly back into the new ‘esteesee’ project!

The songs are written, the guest musicians are organised, the studio is booked, the photo shoot is done, and the album artwork is in development. Pre-orders will be available shortly, and the release date will be announced during my radio session with Kathryn Tickell on Amazing Radio this Monday.

All that remains is to announce the final session musicians:

I am very, very, very excited to announce that Steve Knightley (“Show of Hands” / “Grow Your Own Gig”) will be joining me to provide some guest vocals on the album!

Steve Knightley featured prominently on the Cecil Sharp Project album which served as my launchpad into discovering the world of folk music. I’m unbelievably excited, very humbled, and unbelievably excited to have him involved in this project. Did I mention how unbelievably excited I was?!

I’m also delighted to announce that Jonny Dyer (of “Jonny Dyer & Vicky Swan" fame) will be playing piano for the album and also to add that the utterly lovely Tamsin Rosewell (“My Folk and their Friends”) will be providing one of the poetry readings.

So, the full roster of guest musicians for the album is confirmed as:

Steve Knightley providing guest vocals, the spectacular Patsy Reid on fiddle, viola and cello, Lukas Drinkwater on double bass, Alex Cumming on accordion, Jonny Dyer on the piano, Jo May providing percussion, Andrew Pearce on the drums, Kate Rouse as the damsel with the hammered dulcimer, Steve Pledger on backing vocals and poetry readings from David Milton (the Watchet town crier) and the wonderful Tamsin Rosewell (broadcaster, artist, and super lovely lady!).

Oh my word, it’s going to be a busy and rather exciting time in the studio!!
